We did this tour because we had such a great time on the Weird New York Greenwich Village tour, and saw that this was down by the same operator Hidden New York Tours. Our tour was on a blustery Saturday night after St. Patrick's Day. Tour group was fairly large, but the tour guide did a great job! Missed the last 20 minutes because we were freezing but would definitely like to take it again!

I was not notified that the tour was cancelled until I had showed up to the tour. Was looking forward to this, but was told after I had to call that tour guide was sick.

Apologies for that, Thomas. We were notified last minute as well about the guide's condition.

Russell was our guide for this tour and he did a great job! It was a very interesting and well written presentation. Great jokes and interaction with the group. He would talk about the subject very effortlessly and respond to any questions, showing his great knowledge of it all. Loved every minute of it! I already recommended this tour to a few people and will continue to do so!

Russel was very well prepared. The stories and the historical elements of the area we toured were quite interesting. Highly recommend if you like the “gang history” of New york.

Did the Irish Mob tour. Russell was great! Very informative and funny, really set the scene. We were able to visit the areas, buildings and bars where the crimes took place. Loved it! Well worth the price!

Wonderful tour and guide. The best thing about it? Learning about the events and people on the sidewalks outside the actual buildings where it all happened. Very well researched.

If you’re interested in history and true crime of New York this tour has it all. The tour takes you from New York’s early days up until the present. The tour is well paced and goes over infamous events that may have been forgotten. Russell is an awesome tour guide and brings a clever wit to the background of these events. Best tour we’ve been on in years.

A terrific and entertaining tour through some of the most colorful, interesting and little-known events of Gotham's murderous history. Russell is a great and knowledgable host for the darker side of the Hell's Kitchen Irish diaspora. Some of those people were my ancestors but I had no idea what a literal MOB they were. Unpack a section of New York you will never see in quite the same way again. Highly recommended.

Thank you so much for this great review! If you're never going to walk through Hell's Kitchen again without thinking of dismemberment, then our work here is done:)

Very interesting and entertaining - and well researched. Certainly makes you look twice at buildings and places you normally pass by without a second glance, not realizing their history
